Apple login to Wayfarer?
Are there plans to add an Apple login to Wayfarer? If so, when?
For those Apple login players who are unwilling to have a Facebook or Google login, their gameplay is restricted as follows:
Pokemon Go - unable to submit nominations or make edits
Ingress - can still submit nominations and edits BUT if you use Apple’s hide my email login feature you do not receive emails so you never find out if a submission is rejected, only find out about approvals when you see them in game, and if Wayfarer decides your account is abusive in some respect you will never receive notice. Lack of access to wayfarer also encourages repeat submissions when a submission doesn’t show up in game in a short period of time
Wayfarer - you can’t review submissions or edit your own submissions or track your submissions.
Since Pokemon Go and Ingress (and perhaps other Niantic games) allow Apple login, Wayfarer should as well. Helping to expand and maintain the Lightship database is part of the gameplay which Apple login users are excluded from participating
They don't allow sign in with PTC either.
You don't have to use your main Google email address. Just create a Wayfarer specific one or something and link it to your account.
I am unwilling to have a Google or Facebook account. It is not productive to discuss the reasons or workarounds that should be unnecessary since the games allow Apple logins.
The Wayfarer forum is built using the Vanilla forum solution.
I do not know the details of this solution, but it may not be a user authentication system that Niantic is free to modify.
And in that case, the Vanilla authentication system would be limited to Google or Facebook accounts.
I think Apple wants money for each instance of using its login.
He has already posted in this forum, so his Apple login works in Vanilla forums.
He's requesting access with Apple login to https://wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/
I doubt that. In fact, if an iOS app wants to use Google or Facebook login it must also have Apple sign in. (There may be exceptions). So when a Wayfarer app is launched it should have it.
And reply to the thread Niantic - is it going to be added to the Wayfarer website or is that not in the cards?
